The last Saturday in July

Friday, July 28th, 2017

This Saturday on A Firm Foundation for Life N. W. Ohio’s most trusted hosts will be in studio with a look ahead at some senior issues that continue to expand in our aging society.   Denise Niese, director of the Wood County Committee on Aging joins us first off, to discuss some of the issues happening here in Ohio.   At the State and Local level of government elected officials have to deal with people, people that have names and faces, not like the Federal Government that only worries about politics.  This promises to be an interesting discussion that concerns many of us.

The program starts at 9:00 am.  Live and local on 1370 WSPD, also on 92.9 FM, streamed live at: or remotely on I-Heart radio, and the I-Heart radio app.

100th anniversary of Denali

Friday, July 14th, 2017

It’s a long way from Denali to Toledo

Hi Friends,  returning to the land of night time from the land of 24 hour daylight,  makes sleeping allot more natural.   Last Saturday after our program from Alaska we took the 8 hour bus tour into the heart of Denali National Park, on the park’s 100th anniversary,  and that’s today’s picture attached.   This Saturday on A Firm Foundation for Life an interview with our tour guide from the bus tour,  a 3000’ foot drop off the road at the summit on a dirt road they say is two lanes,  but vehicles must pull to the side to pass,  (no guardrails).

Also this Saturday the rest of our interview with Micky Panteak at Anaktuvuk,  the remote Alaskan village 150 miles from the nearest road,  we flew into the village on Wednesday night.

The program begins at 9:00 am.  live on  WSPD 1370 am. and streamed live at:  or remotely on I-Heart radio,  don’t miss this one.  Rick and Jackie discuss later in the program about the 40th anniversary of the Trans-Alaska pipeline

Hey, get a load of this!

The building block of our country.

Concrete,  most people don’t give it a thought and it looks harmless,   cement, sand, stone, and water,  what’s the big deal?  Jordan Schmeltz joins us Saturday.   Jordan has grown up in the business,  Palmer Brothers Concrete.  Surprisingly you’ll learn too,  it’s not for dummies,  education,  technical training,  and experience are all requirements for a career in the concrete business.   You might be surprised to learn too how highly regulated the industry is too which has led to nationwide shortages from time to time and caused spikes in pricing,  which has led to increased construction costs,  why is it so expensive to build a house?

The program can be heard live beginning at 9:00 am. on 1370 WSPD,  or streamed live at: and remotely anywhere on the I-Heart radio media app.

Retirement has been short lived,  the sign is out,  and very soon this lot will be full of concrete trucks as Rick begins work on a fine custom home just south of Bowling Green,  stay tuned for updates as progress happens.

Have you mowed yet?   Are your taxes paid?

A lot going on this time of the year,   income taxes due on Monday,  and in many cases yards are being mowed.   That’s why N. W. Ohio’s most trusted hosts are always seasonally relevant,  this Saturday we are joined in studio with Chuck Dobson,  this area’s author of green,  weed-free yards at TruGreen in Perrysburg.   All the topics about your yard,  weeds,  crab grass,  mowing height ,  and lawn watering,  (no need to worry about that for weeks!)   The program starts Saturday at 9:00 am.  and is heard locally on N. W. Ohio’s #1 station  1370 WSPD,   is streamed worldwide at:  and heard on your remote device anywhere with the I-Heart media app.
